Traditional and Cremation Burials

Learn About Interment and Memorialization Options for Traditional and Cremation Burials in Cemeteries in Pittsburgh, PA

Families and individuals in the Pittsburgh area are increasingly choosing cremation burials over traditional burials for a variety of reasons. Because religious attitudes related to cremation have evolved, more and more people are being cremated.  What many people don't realize, however, is that the memorialization process does not have to be any different when a person has been cremated. Most cemeteries in Pittsburgh permit cremated remains to be interred in their cemetery. In many cases, the final disposition of cremated remains in a cemetery is more affordable than with a tradional ground burial. Rome Monument offers a wide selection of cremation memorials.

Cemeteries and memorial parks have been traditionally used by families in the Pittsburgh area for burying (interring) bodies or cremated ashes.  Many cemeteries in Pittsburgh will offer you the choice to bury your loved one in the ground or in an above ground mausoleum or crypt. If the burial, interment or inurment involves cremated remains, most cemeteries in Pittsburgh offer entombment of cremains in columbariums or mausoleums or plots in urn gardens.  You can expect the cemetery to take care of preparing the burial site and placing the remains in the grave or cremation space. In some cases Rome Monument will install the gravestone or monument and in other cases, the cemetery will set the stone.  At Rome Monument, we know the best cemeteries in Pittsburgh - it is our business.
